May 2013 Ipsy Box

IMG_3322

This is my first bag Β from Ipsy and I heard it’s as good or better than Birchbox. That’s gonna take some time to see cause I’ve gotten some pretty swanky things from Birchbox.

My first impression is that I like it. I love nail polish (it’s the easiest and fastest beauty thing I can do) and lip gloss. I am also ALWAYS open to new hair treatments for my dry as hell hair.

The concealer however, I am absolutely gonna give away. I am one of those women other woman hate because I almost never get a pimple and to be perfetly honest, I don’t give a rats ass if my eyes have shadows under them. I’m a working mother of a 5 year old trying to sell books and crafts on the site. Shit yeah, I’m tired and I’m proud of it. XD

I’ve used Zoya polish before so I know this will be a great summer color for my fingers and toes. The perfume I have to be careful with because I work with people with scent sensitivities. When I start dating again (or whenever I feel like it) I’ll wear it then. For now, I like the soft, fruity scent of it.

As for the inevitable collection of bags I will have? Maybe I’ll give them away on the blog or my site. I certainly won’t need all of them.

August Birchbox

I am really happy with this month’s offering from Birchbox. (that’s my referral link if you wanna sign up) Any time I get the chance to try a new type of product for curly hair for free, I’m a happy camper. In terms of trying types of makeup I wouldn’t normally use, this box isn’t as good as the others. Hair is something I’m pretty familiar with. However, I am excited to try this stuff. πŸ™‚

The one thing I don’t really care about is the razor. Really? I’m a cheap bastard. I get my razors in bulk from BJ’s or deeply discounted from the pharmacy. I’ve learned over the years that price isn’t really a factor in how well a razor does it’s job on my legs. But hey, extra razor! πŸ˜€

Since I am a curly haired gal, I will absolutely review the Miss Jessie’s products. Look for that coming up soon. πŸ˜‰
